Subject: Welnick backstage
There was a Leslie speaker cabinet in the room with a mic running to the stage. He said he was going with a. Stripped down stage presence after Brent's "cockpit" setup. So they moved the Leslie to his dressing room. Leslie makes that whooshing sound you heard when Brent played the B3.
After I left I went out to the stage area and learned that the whole interview had been played on the PA cuz of the microphone in the room. I watched the crew puttering around while I looked at my notes, and realized that jerry had been there all along, on a couch inside the "tent" city behind stage.
Makes sense considering he had trouble even walking much around this time. So whenever he disappeared for the drums set he only went about 50 feet to his sofa with its black curtains all around. He was there on stage the whole time.
Subject: Not so bad..

Subject: I concur
Subject: Dismal Affair!!
After a nice suprise Box of Rain opener this show took a nose dive and can rival any 94-95 show for worst of the decade.
Jerry sings only 4 songs the whole night, he probably shouldn't of sung any. Even worse he is absent on the playing end as well through the entire show. The rest of the band, even Hornsby, can't pick up the slack on this one. Can't think of any redeeming value to download even one song on this show, unless your a fan of Cassidy 1st set closers and Way to Go Home 2nd set openers(OUCH!).
I saw 6 shows on this tour, 3 Nassau 3 Philly, and maybe 2 (03/11 & 03/16) earned an average rating at best. If you are looking for Spring 92 shows check out Copps or Hampton.

Subject: Its not bad
Sure this show is not the best, but the Box opener and So Many Roads are well done. Sound quality not bad at all for an audience.
So if you went to this show, don't be deterred from the other reviews.
Subject: I guess you had to be there.
Subject: The Beginning of the End
"What are you talking about?" came the reply. You know what they say, "You can always tell a deadhead, but you can't tell him much." This was the beginning of the end for me. After starting out in 1986 and all the great shows in '87, '88 '89, '90 and '91, 1992 is just awful. They say Brent is the guy that spurred Jerry on, well without him and with only lame-ass Vince as a replacment it's no wonder.
Subject: all the other reviews are correct
go for the night before(3/16)this to get one of the better shows of spring 92(thats not saying much)
Subject: damn you factman!!
Subject: DON'T BOTHER!!!!
But there's a reason nobody has written a review of this show yet. IT'S NOT WORTH HAVING!
Jerry sings four songs for the entire night. FOUR! This is the St. Patrick's Day Massacre. If Owsley had made a Matrix tape of the show it still wouldn't be worth having. This show makes 6-29-92 (the second night of Deer Creek) look like a hot show. It makes the Richfield Blizzard show look positively suspenseful.
Now that I've given you plenty of warning against wasting your time on it, let your morbid fascination with car wrecks get the better of you and go ahead, download it. You know you will.
